Ground Chile Hatch New Mexico Red

Regular price $4.99

Hatch New Mexico Red Chile Powder has a deep dark reddish brown color and is most commonly found in Southwestern and New Mexican cuisine. It is also used in traditional red chile sauces to create an authentic New Mexican flair. You can use this to add zest (or piquancy) to carne adovada, enchiladas, salsas, sauces, stews, tamales and numerous vegetable dishes. What makes this cuisine so unique from the neighboring states is that chiles are not used only as a seasoning, they are often the main ingredient.

This chile powder comes from arguably the most famous chile growing town in the US -- Hatch, New Mexico the self-proclaimed Chile Capital of the World. Hatch is located 37 miles north of Las Cruces and is just west of the Rio Grande River. New Mexico chiles are planted in early April and are harvested between late August and early October. As summer draws to a close, the green chiles are maturing and turn a deep, rich red color. This changes the flavor profile of the chile, as it becomes a bit mellower and sweeter as it matures.
